Shorter Days Impact Your Sleep

oktober 19, 2023

This time of year is lovely in the Northern Hemisphere with cooler breezes and falling leaves. The days are noticeably getting shorter, though, which is a harbinger of a lot less light in our lives. Light has a surprising amount to do with your sleep, not just dark. This is because our circadian rhythm, the body’s sleep-wake cycle, dominates many of our daily activities over the course of 24 hours. This clock is internal but is also affected by external factors like day and night, light and dark. When it starts getting darker, the clock begins to make adjustments.

Disruptions in the circadian rhythm of our bodies can be easily absorbed by some, but not so much by others. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects many people when the sunlight becomes scarce. It can lead to feelings of fatigue, poor sleep patterns, craving carbohydrates, trouble focusing and social withdrawal. Our bodies need dark to sleep but also need bright light to dispel the effects of too much dark. Only a half an hour of bright light therapy a day can produce this effect. Zenbev Drink Mix, in conjunction with the effects of Yumalite can achieve this balance and push off the harmful effects SAD can have on our lives.

The Better Mood Bundle is perfectly designed to cover all the bases circadian rhythms can get out of whack with. Zenbev is a natural sleep remedy that works within the body to trigger natural sleep by a clever formula which stimulates natural melatonin production. Your own melatonin. The Yumalite is designed to be a wearable light therapy device which, worn for only half an hour in the morning with the light over your eyes, has the ability to push away the symptoms of SAD by stimulating your own natural serotonin production. Both are tested, proven ways to take charge of your day and night.

Are you worried about the coming darker days? Lift your mood and improve your sleep with the power of taking charge of your sleep-wake cycle. Rather than dread the long days, we can help you get the most out of this time of year!
